A learner driver killed a shopper by deliberately swerving into him in a row at a Sainsbury's car park, a court heard.

Timothy Higgins, 22, wanted to 'scare' Christopher Gadd, 48, after his VW Passat blocked him from leaving his parking space.  

Higgins told police he deliberately drove towards Mr Gadd in his Land Rover Freelander to 's*** him up', a jury at Cardiff Crown Court was told. 

The farm worker, whose brother Paul was also in the car, suffered a 'significant' head injury and died moments after the collision in Pontllanfraith, South Wales, on March 4. 

Jurors will be shown CCTV of Mr Gadd falling backwards and suffering banging his head.

Timothy Higgins, 22, (right outside court today ) wanted to 'scare' Christopher Gadd, 48, (left) after his VW Passat blocked him from leaving his parking space.

Shoppers and supermarket workers ran to give first aid but he died at the scene. 

Prosecutor Owen Williams said: 'Mr Gadd was with his brother Paul in a silver VW Passat - they were going to do some shopping.

'Paul Gadd, who was driving, positioned the car so that the defendant was unable to reverse out of the spot where he was parked.

'Mr Higgins became annoyed, they gestured at each other. The V-sign was used.

'Christopher Gadd got out of the vehicle and shouted at the defendant.'

Higgins drove away with his girlfriend Nia Bailey in the passenger seat.

Cardiff Crown Court heard Mr Gadd walked across car park carriageways to 'continue remonstrating' with Higgins.
